The José Limón Dance Foundation is a certified 501 (c) (3) nonprofit. Annual charitable contributions from institutions and individuals enable us to create, rehearse, tour, and teach regularly each year.

Through our Friends of Limón Membership Program (for contributions of $75-$999), we're pleased to offer contributors more ways to deepen their experience with the history and lineage of Limón's technique and work. We offer special discounts, bespoke events, advance performance notification, and more. 

Our Major Gift programs (for annual gifts of $1,000 and up) offer unparalleled dance scene access to contributors who sustain our programs. The Artists Circle and Legacy Circle provide unique opportunities and behind-the-scenes access for leadership donors who give generously to support our mission.

Please see below for details on the benefits of all programs.
